Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita (AMC)
Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita (AMC) is a condition that occurs one in every 3,000 births. Although those numbers seem common, very few people are aware of the condition. The condition involves curved or hooked joints, limited range of motion and multiple joint contractures throughout the body at birth. Roger is a ten year old boy who was born with arthrogryposis in January 2010, his parents relied heavily on the information and support found at amcsupport.org. Visit the site to learn more about the condition and come out and support the cause on June 14, 2014. Any proceeds above the cost of the event will be donated to AMCSupport.
